Theist, Atheist, or Agnostic
There has been some arguing in another thread about whether or not theists outnumber atheists on EvC.

Without subscribing to "labels," I thought that it would be best if we simply answer whether or not you ascribe yourself as being an atheist or a theist. To be clear and concise, just state whether subscribe to atheism, agnosticism or theism; atheist, agnostic or theist.

Vote now.... Every vote counts.

There has been some arguing in another thread about whether or not theists outnumber atheists on EvC.

Actually I wasn't "arguing"--just not sure.

What about agnostics? Can we throw them into the atheist camp for all practical purposes?

My position is atheistic.

I didn't mean arguing in a negative way, and it was Purple Youko, or whatever her/his name is that made the assumption.

What about agnostics? Can we throw them into the atheist camp for all practical purposes?

Yes, and I'm disheartened that I left it out. Absolutely. It would only be fair to include agnostics.

poll
This is coming along nicely....

So far we have 1 atheist, 2 theists, and 1 agnostic.

You left out "undecided".

Nope.

An agnostic doesn't know. An "undecided" hasn't decided what to do with what he does know. :)
